i watch two and half men every season.this time i have lot of dvd collection of this tv show.
Steven Spielberg said the 'thirysomething' scripts were the best written on TV and advised writers to study them. The show had terrific actors but the theme was a bit lame: "everyday life for boomers with spouses, jobs and babies." There was no real conflict. The characters just had to get used to feeding the baby, dealing with the boss, and their own changing ideas about themselves. No alternative was proposed. No take on the situation developed. There was just no way out. That said, the show got better as it rolled along because a villain emerged: Miles, the boss, at work. Once a clear set of values in opposition became clear, the actors took the scripts to new heights, from bland to spicy.
Several members of that cast went on to acquire cool credits as producers and directors in television imho. i was really young when it was on but i loved it.
